We bought it new...its had 2 recalls on it since new I believe. I replaced the front rotor and pads at 57k only because the rotors warped. The car is great...the factory tires stink...I swapped to Hankook and like them.
I cant say anything bad about our subie...well yes the handling sucked when it was new and I put the rear sway bar on and now its great!. Soft ride...ok fuel numbers...
I will not sell it as long as this keeps up. It can climb a Mtn in the snow...hard to believe...
the AWD in the snow...this is my 5th Subie...and the 8.7" of ground clearance.
better Fuel numbers...which they have done! WE NEED A DIESEL.
I purchased a year old outback with 17,000 miles in excellent condition. Shortly after while driving with my wife in the passenger's seat the air bag off indicator light was on. It's sometimes on and some times off. My
wife weights about 120lbs well above 102lbs limit. The car also has rust forming under the lip of the rear hatch door. Subaru refuses to cover the rust repair and says the air works as designed. This is a serious safety issue. They said they fixed it in the 2012 model. There solution was to sell me a new car. Wow this company sucks! We bought this car for its reported safety, what a joke. My wife and daughter are nervous when sitting in the front seat
Subaru does not stand behind their products. Warranty coverage is a myth. Research NTSB website for complaints before buying.
I've driven my 2011 Subaru Outback about 1000 miles so far.
Bought it used with 37K miles.
I was at first hesitant to jump in for this crossover, but decided to give it a shot.
I'd say that CVT transmission and some Subaru quirks are something that I needed to get used to, but once I was acclimated, driving any other car is not fun any more.
I love the spaciousness of the interior, and the performance of the AWD and boxer engine.
You get respectable gas mileage at around 25 miles combined.
Everything the Edmonds / CR experts talk about is spot-on, but nothing that you'd want to worry about. I love driving this thing around my town and can't wait for next road trip!

I remember reading that the Subaru Outback is good at everything but great at nothing before I bought one a year ago. This is very accurate except in terms of reliability and mud handling. Being from northern California I do not experience snow but I can attest to its mud ability, which is excellent (be sure to turn traction control off). I have pulled Sea Doo boats and Yamaha Jet Skis with ease, surprising for a 4 cylinder, but it was competent as long as the load wasn't over 2500lbs. Ride and comfort could not be better (it beats my 2000 BMW 328i by a long shot). I could not wish for a better car, only thing are a few rattles and squeaks which I hate and its exterior looks suck.
Fabulous Mileage for a 3400lb SUV...better than my CRV by 20%!!
Just put on my first 8,000 km (90%hwy/10%
City) or 5000 miles by driving to calgary,salt lake, sedona,LA,etc and back to Vancouver,BC.
I used AVERAGE 7.0 l/100km...that's 34 us mpg or 41 canadian mpg for 5000miles. At one point when I kept speed downto 60mph I averaged 39usMPG or 47 cdn MPG for 200 miles.
Car is very comfortable with best leg room ever( 6,3inches...my crv sucks in comparison) for long drives.
Fantastic Car!!!Suggest you rename car as SUPARU
